We all know that our skin changes as we age and the needs of our complexions alter, but did you know that your skin also goes through changes at different points of the year, depending on the season? In the winter, the cold, dry air can lead to skin becoming parched and prone to flakiness, demanding extra hydration and moisturising to combat these effects. As spring arrives, skin often experiences a resurgence, shedding the dullness of winter and revealing a fresher complexion.
Summer brings its own set of challenges, with increased exposure to UV rays leading to a need for sun protection and oil control. During the autumn months, skin may become more sensitive due to fluctuating temperatures and lower humidity, requiring gentle care and nourishment. Adapting our skincare routines to align with these seasonal shifts is crucial in maintaining healthy, radiant skin throughout the year.
With this in mind, we’ve put together a skin kit for each season of the year to help you to address some of the usual concerns:
